* ARTHUR AMORYy the second son of James Sullivan 
and Mary Copley (Greene) Amory, was born in Boston, 
February 6, 1841. He fitted for college at Epes S. Dix well's 
school in Boston. In the summer of 1860 he visited Green- 
land with a scientific expedition from Williams College, a 
trip full of interesting and valuable experience. 

In September, 1863, Amory went to New York to engage 
in the dry-goods commission business, as salesman with 
Messrs. Slade and Colby. On the dissolution of this firm, 
in 1866, he became a partner in the house of Upham, Tucker 
and Co., a branch of the old Boston house of the same name, 
established in March, 1833, under the name of Searle and 
Upham. In June, 1877, he returned to Boston; his firm 
later became Dana, Tucker and Co., and, in January, 1896, 
Amory, Browne and Co. He was at one time president 
of the Nashua Manufacturing Co., the Jackson Co., and 
the Indian Head Mills, at Cordova, Ala. 

"While in New York, in 1865, Amory was one of the 
founders of the Harvard Club of that city; he also belonged 
to the Thursday Evening Whist Club, the Union Club, and 
the New York Club. In Boston he was a member of the 
Somerset Club, the Wednesday Evening Club, the Club 
of Odd Volumes, and the Eastern Yacht Club. He was 
Chief Marshal of his class at the 25th anniversary in 1887. 

Amory died at his home, 133 Marlborough St., Boston, 
August 9, 1911.

BARRETT 5 

years were spent on his uncle's farm in Sturbridge, greatly 
influencing his subsequent life. He fitted for college at the 
Watertown High School. In September, 1862, he entered 
Newton Theological Institution at Newton Centre, Mass., 
graduating in 1865. During the last year he spent some 
three months in the army of the James, in the service of the 
U. S. Christian Commission. September 17, 1865, he was 
ordained at Watertown, Brother Lecompte assisting in the 
services. But, though a good pastorate and a college 
professorship in New Testament Interpretation invited, 
broken health compelled rest. Most of that autumn was 
passed in the South, and a large part of the next year, 1866, 
in travel in Europe. Health restored, in December, 1867, 
he accepted a pastorate in Weston, Mass., and subsequently 
in Winchester, Mass.; at Berean Church, New York City; 
South Abington (Whitman), Mass., and Concord, N. H. 
During the year 1885-1886 he was professor of Biblical Inter- 
pretation and Classics in Shaw University, Raleigh, N. C. 
Then followed pastorates in Bristol, R. I.; Lowell and 
Milford, Mass. In September, 1894, he became president 
of Jackson College, Jackson, Miss., which office, after seven- 
teen years' strenuous w^ork and successful administration, 
he resigned September 30, 1911. He has returned to 
Massachusetts, and resides at 6 Sacramento St., Cambridge, 
while his son, Herbert, finishes his last year at the Harvard 
Law School; intending thereafter, without further public 
responsibility, to enjoy a quiet home in Melrose, at 100 
Vinton St. His summer address is Oak Bluffs, Mass.

6 CLASS OF 'SIXTY-TWO — H.U. 

* WILLIAM FRANCIS BARTLETT, son of Charles 
Leonard and Harriett (Plummer) Bartlett, was born at 
Haverhill, Mass., June 6, 1840. His family moved to 
Boston soon after his birth; and he fitted for college there 
at the private school of W. H. Brooks. April 17, 1861, he 
enlisted as private in the Fourth Battalion Massachusetts 
Volunteer Militia, stationed at Fort Independence, Boston 
Harbor. On the formation of the Twentieth Regiment, 
Bartlett was commissioned as captain, July 10. He was 
at the battle of Ball's Bluff, October 21. April 24, 1862, 
while before Yorktown, he received a wound in the left 
knee which necessitated the amputation of the leg. In 
September, 1862, he took command of Fort Briggs, Pitts- 
field, Mass., where the Forty-ninth Regiment was assembling. 
November 10 he was chosen colonel of the regiment; on 
the departure of the regiment for New Orleans in January, 
Bartlett rode down Broadway with his crutch strapped to 
his back. In the assault on Port Hudson, May 27, 1863, 
he was again wounded, this time in the left wrist. After 
the mustering-out of the Forty -ninth (a nine-months' 
regiment), Bartlett raised the Fifty-seventh, which he took 
to Virginia in April, 1864. In the battle of the Wilderness, 
May 6, he was again slightly wounded. June 22, 1864, he 
was made a brigadier-general, and in July took command 
of a brigade in the Ninth Corps, then before Petersburg. 
At the assault of July 30, after the explosion of the mine, 
Bartlett was taken prisoner. He was in captivity two 
months; from disease caused by the hardships of this period 
he never fully recovered. In June, 1865, he returned to 
active duty, taking command of the First Division of the 
Ninth Corps; but on July 14 the division was broken up 
and his active service was over. On being mustered out 
July 16, 1866, he received the commission of major-general 
by brevet, to date from March 13, 1865. 

On returning to civil life, Bartlett engaged at first in 
the manufacture of paper at Dal ton, and in the manufacture 
of iron at the Pomeroy Iron Works at West Stockbridge. 
Later he became president and general manager of the 
Powhatan Iron Works at Richmond, Va.; and for some 
years he spent his winters in Richmond and his summers 



BARTLETT 7 

at his home in Pittsfield, until his faiHng health forbade 
the change. He gave up business and led a very quiet 
life, dechning, in 1875, both the Republican nomination 
for governor and the Democratic nomination for lieutenant- 
governor. His health was constantly failing; and he died 
at his home in Pittsfield, December 17, 1876. 

In the years following the war, as during the four years 
of conflict, Bartlett strove for the restoration of the Union. 
He preached peace, good- will, the rebuilding of the shattered 
fabric on the firm foundations of mutual respect and con- 
fidence and loyalty to the Republic. His was the high 
statesmanship that looked forward, that recognized the 
best qualities of men, even of men who had erred, and 
sought to use them for the restoration of order, the revival 
of prosperity, and the solution of the numerous and diffi- 
cult problems, — political, social, and financial, — involved 
in the restoration of the Southern States to their place in 
the Union. At the dedication of Memorial Hall, June 24, 
1874, he uttered these solemn words of warning: "Take 
care lest you repel by injustice or suspicion, or even by 
indifference, the returning love of men who now speak with 
pride of that flag as *our flag.'" The next Spring, at the 
centennial celebration at Lexington, after renewing his 
appeal, and paying a tribute to the good faith and loyalty 
to the reunited country of the leaders of the Southern 
cause, he added : " These are the men by whom and through 
whom you must restore the South."

daughter of Robert Pomeroy, of Pittsfield. Mrs. Bartlett 
died February 16, 1909.

ITHAMAR WARREN BEARD, son of Ithamar War- 
ren and Mary Atkins (Todd) Beard, was born in Pittsfield,

degree in 1870. He began the study of law in the office of 
J. S. and G. F. Richardson, was admitted to the bar October 

17, 1864, and in 1866, after serving for a year as secretary

In 1899 Beard gave up his parish at Dover, after twenty- 
three years' service, and became chaplain of the Chapel of 
the Good Shepherd, on Blackwell's Island, New York City. 
He regards his work at Dover as eminently successful in 
every respect. In 1882 he wrote: "My life is the quiet 
and satisfactory life of a parish minister. I have done 



BLAKE 9 

nothing particularly to distinguish myself; and, on the 
other hand, I have never been caught in any especially 
disagreeable act." In December, 1911, he writes: "I am 
finding my last days my best days. I am very well physi- 
cally, and constantly busy about my work, which I enjoy 
very much, and am consequently very happy and con- 
tented." Four of his children are actively engaged in

Evanston, 111., serving both churches until 1897, when he 
resigned from the Chicago church, retaining that at Evans- 
ton, which he has now served continuously for nearly twenty 
years. "The Society is small, thriving, happy; and my 
long ministry with them has been one of very great happiness 
to me. About seven years ago my people built a stone 
chapel notable in this neighborhood for its solid construc- 
tion and its very beautiful architecture." While minister- 
ing to the two churches, Blake was employed for a time by 
Morgan and Wright, manufacturers of rubber tires, as super- 
intendent of their factory. In Chicago he took an active 
part in the work of the Associated Charities.

WILLIAM TUFTS BRIGHAM, son of William Brig- 
ham (H. C. 1829) and Margaret Austin (Brooks) Brigham, 
was bom in Boston, May 24, 1841. He fitted for college 
at the Boston Latin School. He was class secretary till 
1887, when Grinnell took his place. After graduation he 
studied law in his father's oflSce for eighteen months, and 
then started for San Francisco, where he was joined by Mr. 
Horace Mann. After exploring the mines of Washoe and 
some of the hot springs of California and Nevada, they 
sailed for the Hawaiian Islands, where they arrived in May, 
1864, and began a scientific exploration of the Islands. 
After six months, Brigham was appointed professor of 
natural sciences in Oahu College; but he resigned in Octo- 
ber, 1865, and returned home by way of China, India, 
Egypt, and Europe. He was admitted to the bar in 1867. 
In 1868-1869, on the death of Mr. Mann, he taught botany 
for a time at Harvard College. In 1869 he went to California 
over the Pacific Railroad, then just opened, visiting Salt 
Lake City and the Yosemite Valley. He was for six years 



BRIGHAM IS 

a member of the Boston school board, giving especial 
attention to drawing in the public schools, then a new branch 
of instruction; he organized evening drawing schools, and 
established a Normal Art School. In 1872 he visited Great 
Britain with the Japanese Embassy; and in 1878 journeyed 
with a friend through southern France and northern Italy. 
During these years he delivered several courses of lectures 
on scientific subjects. In 1876 he was appointed by the 
Hawaiian government honorary commissioner to the Cen- 
tennial Exhibition at Philadelphia, to report on the geology 
and mineralogy of the kingdom. In June, 1880, he made 
a second visit to the Hawaiian Islands, and made an ex- 
ploration of the volcanoes Kilauea and Mauna Loa. For 
several years after his return he practised law in Boston, 
at the same time pursuing his scientific studies, and pub- 
lishing articles on scientific subjects. He made a special 
study of the laws of growth in the human body, as influ- 
enced by physical exercise and affected by race. He was 
also much interested in photography, in which he became 
highly skilful. In July, 1886, he was appointed consul in 
Boston for the Republic of Guatemala. 

In 1888 Brigham went to Honolulu, to collect material 
for a history of the Islands. In 1890 he became director 
of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum of Polynesian 
Ethnology and Natural History. To this work he has de- 
voted himself ever since; and under his care the museum, 
"from a building of two small rooms and a picture-gallery, 
has more than quadrupled in size, and by its collections, 
scientific works, and publications, has attained an honorable 
place among the museums of the world." In 1896 Brigham 
went round the world a second time, making a study of 
ethnological museums, and marine zoological stations. 
This spring he has made a third visit to Europe for the same 
purpose. 

He writes, March 9, 1912: "As to the biography, there 
is nothing, except that I have been writing up the con- 
tents of this museum until my eyes have given out, and I 
am coming to Boston to find an oculist. I hope to sail 
for Europe before May 1." 

Brigham's publications have been numerous, varied.

and Port Royal, investigating the condition of the freedmen, 
under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Freedmen 's Relief 
Association. May 15, 1866, he was licensed to preach the 
Gospel by the Plymouth Association of Ministers at Ply- 
mouth; and on October 1 he entered the Theological Insti- 
tute of Hartford, Conn., where he completed his preparatory 
studies in June, 1867. February 13, 1868, he was ordained

CARTER 15 

Church in Neponset, Mass.; was dismissed by council 
July 1, 1869; preached during the four closing months of 
that year at Rockville, Conn; and was settled at Great 
Falls, N. H., April 27, 1870. In June, 1872, he moved to 
Lawrence, Mass., where he supplied the pulpit of the Central 
Church through that year. In January, 1873, he was 
settled over the South Congregational Church, Lawrence, 
where he remained till July, 1888, when he accepted the 
post of city missionary and secretary of the Lawrence City 
Mission, a society established in 1859, but reorganized in 
1885 on the principles of the Charity Organization Societies 
of other cities. 

"This change of work introduced me to an entirely new 
outlook upon the world's needs, and brought me into inti- 
mate relations with social workers throughout the country. 
I have served two years as an overseer of the poor; was 
chairman of the committee of personal relief in 1890 when 
a disastrous cyclone swept a portion of the city; was for 
two years chairman of the Industrial Committee of the 
State Association of Congregational Churches of Massa-

Monday Evening Club and of the Essex North Congrega- 
tional Club; am chaplain at the Lawrence jail; am an 
agent of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of 
Cruelty to Children; as chairman of the Lawrence Sani- 
tary Milk Committee I have had a study made of the 
infant mortality of the city, and have seen a reduction of 
the death rate procured in part by the work of the com- 
mittee in educating the public as to the importance of 
keeping milk clean, and in teaching mothers how to care for 
their babies. In these various positions I have felt with 
increasing force the value of genuine Christianity, and have 
seen, as I did not when I was a pastor, the opportunity of 
the true minister of Christ. 

"In addition to the regular routine of an oflfice which under- 
takes to relieve distress, advise in difficulty, and plan for 
the conquering of poverty, I have taken an interest in and 
lent my influence to the advancing of various social 



16 CLASS OF 'SIXTY-TWO — H.U. 

reforms. The restriction of child labor, the shortening of 
the hours of employment of women in manufacturing and 
mercantile establishments, the securing of one day of rest 
in seven for working men, the suppression of intemperance, 
and similar topics of legislation, I have advocated before 
committees of the Greneral Court."

* CHARLES POLLEN FOLSOM, son of Rev. Nathaniel 
Smith and Ann Wendell (Penhallow) Folsom, was born in 
Haverhill, Mass., April 3, 1842. Before entering college 
he lived in Gharlestown, and in Meadville, Penn., afterwards 
in Jamaica Plain and Goncord, Mass. He fitted for 
college at Phillips Exeter Academy. In June, 1862, he went 
to Port Royal, S. G., and served three years as superintend- 
ent of plantations, the first season in the employ of the 
United States; in the Spring of 1865, he acted as general 
superintendent for the Government on Edisto Island and 
at Georgetown. 

In July, 1865, Folsom returned to Boston and began 
the study of medicine. After a voyage to San Francisco 
and back for his health (he returned before the mast), he 
began practice in Boston. He served as assistant in the 
private oflBce of Dr. Henry I. Bowditch, and in 1869 was 
at the Gity Hospital. He was assistant at the McLean In- 
sane Asylum in 1872-1873; spent a year in study in Europe; 
and was appointed in September, 1874, Secretary of the 
State Board of Health, of which Dr. Bowditch was Ghair- 
man. After another visit to Europe, to study the subject 
of sewage-disposal, he was appointed on a commission, with 



GILBERT 27 

two engineers, to report a plan for the disposal of sewage of 
Boston; their recommendations were adopted. He was 
also one of three experts appointed by the National Board 
of Health to report upon the sanitary conditions of Memphis 
and the means to suppress yellow fever. From 1877 to 
1882, and from 1885 to 1888, he was Lecturer at the Harvard 
Medical School, on Hygiene and on Mental Diseases; from 
1882 to 1885, Assistant Professor of Mental Diseases. In 
May, 1880, he became a member of the State Board of 
Health, Lunacy and Charity; and he was, for a short 
time, a member of the National Board of Health. He 
was one of the visiting physicians of the Boston City 
Hospital, and consulting physician to the Adams Nervine 
Asylum. In 1896 he was one of the commissioners ap- 
pointed to investigate the charitable and reformatory 
institutions of Massachusetts. For more than thirty 
years he pursued his profession in Boston as a general 
practitioner, devoting himself especially to the treatment 
of mental disease. 

Folsom served as overseer of Harvard University from 
1891 to 1903. He was a Fellow of the American Academy 
of Arts and Sciences. From 1903 to 1905 he was president 
of the Harvard Medical Alumni Association. 

During the last few years of his life, Folsom gradually 
became more and more of an invalid. He died at a hospital 
in New York, August 20, 1907, soon after his return from a 
visit to England. An account of his activities as a physician, 
written by Dr. J. J. Putnam, may be found in the Proceed- 
ings of the American Academy, Vol. XLIV. 

Folsom married. May 12, 1886, Martha Tucker Wash- 
burn, daughter of William R. P. Washburn, of Boston, 
and sister of our classmate. 

SHEPARD DEVEREUX GILBERT, son of Samuel 
Shepard and Sarah Crowninshield (Devereux) Gilbert, was 
born in Boston, July 28, 1840. He fitted for college at the

missioner; was admitted to the South Carolina bar in 1877, 
and was appointed a trial justice for Beaufort in 1878. A 
few years later he was engaged in mining in North Carolina. 
Returning North, he lived for some years in Salem and 
Boston, passing several summers in Western North Carolina 
and one season on Snake River, Idaho. In 1889 he went 
to New York, and was for three years editorially connected 
with the Lockwood Press of that city. After December, 
1891, he was for a time editor of the Engraver and Printer, 
Boston. Since 1892 he has lived at Salem, spending his 
summers in his cottage at Jaffrey, N. H. "In the early 
part of 1899 I passed several months in the South, revisiting 
my former home on the Sea Islands of South Carolina, 
renewing my friendship with 'Jimmy' Cole, of our class, 
who alone remained in that locality of the score of Harvard 
men who were there in war times." 

In 1894 Gilbert became a member of the Massachusetts 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution; he has 
served on its board of managers, and has been a delegate 
of the State Society at several congresses of the National 
Society. When the Harvard Union was organized in 1902,

* JAMES INGERSOLL GRAFTON, son of Joseph and 
Maria (Gurley) Grafton, was born in Boston, June 16, 1841. 
His father was a major in the United States Army. He 
fitted for college at Nazareth, Pa. He left college in No- 
vember, 1861, was commissioned, November 1, second 
lieutenant in the Second Massachusetts Regiment, and 
first lieutenant July 21, 1862. At the battle of Cedar 
Mountain, August 9, 1862, he was badly wounded in the 
head; and was severely wounded again at Chancellorsville, 
May, 1863. He was then a captain, having received his 
commission November 9, 1862. The Second was with 
Sherman in the march from Atlanta to North Carolina. 
At Averysborough, N. C, the first serious opposition to the 
movement was encountered; and here, on the morning of 
March 16, 1865, Grafton was killed while holding in check, 
with a handful of skirmishers, the advancing line of the 
enemy. Lieutenant Samuel Storrow (H. C. 1864), also 
of the Second, was killed in the same engagement. With 
but one exception (E. L. Stevens, H. C. 1863, killed at 
Boykins' Mills, S. C, April 18, 1865), these were the last 
Harvard men to fall in battle during the War of the Rebellion. 

JAMES GREEN, son of James and Elizabeth (Swett) 
Green, was bom in Worcester, Mass., March 2, 1841. He 
attended the public schools in Worcester, and fitted for 
college at the Worcester High School. He writes of himself 
as follows: 



30 CLASS OF 'SIXTY-TWO — H.U. 

"Entering college without condition, I set an example 
to myself in scholarship which I have quite failed to live up 
to. In school and college I was handicapped by weak eyes 
and insuflBcient strength to endure the sedentary life. As 
we left college, the War of Secession had been going on for 
over a year, and I tried hard to get into the army upon the 
terms laid down by our family physician — that I must 
not go into the ranks and have to carry a knapsack. By 
help of the drill we had had at the Cambridge Arsenal, I 
helped, to drill the recruits in some towns out of Worcester, 
but I failed to get any place for myself in the army. I was 
entered meanwhile as a law student in Dwight Foster's 
oflfice in Worcester, and I entered the Harvard Law School, 
after being away from Cambridge only a term. The law 
school was full of many of the ablest men from Yale and 
other colleges as well as Harvard; and while there was a 
good deal of hard study in the school, there was little dis- 
cipline and no examination, and life was even more agree- 
able there than in college. After getting my law degree in 
1864, 1 spent a year in law offices in New York City and was 
admitted to practice there. Then I travelled in the West 
a good part of a year, going as far as to Omaha, which 
seemed very far in those days, for only thirty miles of the 
Union Pacific Railroad had been built. Coming back to 
Worcester I started to practise law, and have been labelled 
as a lawyer ever since. In 1872 I was sent abroad for my 
health, and stayed in Europe two years and a half till my 
father died in the summer of 1874. I lived in Rome three 
winters, nine months in all, and as much more time in the 
rest of Italy; I went to Greece and as far as to Constanti- 
nople, had a month on foot in Switzerland, a few months 
more in Germany and Austria, and travelled a little in 
France and England. All this time I was very much in- 
terested in architecture and the fine arts and modern 
languages. These studies were mostly new to me, and they 
had a perceptible influence upon my character and after- 
life. Three years later I went back to Europe again, and 
spent a year in Spain and England. This year intensified 
my former interest in modern languages and the fine arts. 
Coming home again in 1878, I have lived ever since in 



GREEN 31 

Worcester, occupied enough in law and the care of real 
estate to spoil the possibility of cultivating my new tastes 
in any satisfactory way. As a sign, however, that those 
new influences were enduring, I would mention that I 
joined a little German club, the object of which was reading 
and talking in German, about seventeen years ago, and we 
have kept the club going ever since. I have also risen to 
the shining height of president of our Alliance Frangaise 
and to the pinnacle of president of our Worcester Society 
of Antiquity, which is our local historical society. 

"Not many years after settling down in Worcester, I 
belonged to the Commonwealth Club of Boston with Sen- 
ator Lodge and other young radicals of that time. I was 
for many years a member of the St. Botolph Club, and have 
belonged to the Massachusetts Reform Club almost ever 
since the first Cleveland campaign. 

"At the time of the British war in South Africa, I wrote 
a pamphlet on that subject which was circulated freely in 
America and England, and was even reprinted by the 
British South African Association for further distribution. 
I have also written more or less of a biographical nature, 
including my recollections of the late Daniel H. Chamber- 
lain, governor of South Carolina after the War, and sketches 
of our departed classmates, Tom Chadbourne, Coleman, 
C. E. Greene and Ker. 

"In writing our obituaries, it is usual to show from 
whom we are descended, and how far; so I will add that I 
am derived from John Tilley and his wife through their 
daughter Elizabeth, who all came over on the Mayflower^ 
and from John Rowland who came with them on this ship 
and married the daughter. John's manner of coming over is 
thus described in Governor Bradford's "History of Ply- 
mouth . " 'In sundrie of these stormes the winds were so f eirce, 
& ye seas so high, as they could not beare a knote of saile, 
but were forced to hull, for diverce days togither. And 
in one of them, as they thus lay at hull, in a mighty storme, 
a lustie yonge man (called John Howland) coming upon 
some occasion above ye grattings, was, with a seele of ye 
shipe throwne into [ye] sea ; but it pleased God yt he caught 
hould of ye tope-saile halliards, which hunge over board, 



32 CLASS OF ' S I X T Y-T W O — H. U. 

& rane out at length; yet he held his hould (though he was 
sundrie fadomes under water) till he was hald up by ye 
same rope to ye brime of ye water, and then with a boat 
hooke & other means got into ye shipe againe, & his life 
saved; and though he was something ill with it, yet he lived 
many years after, and became a profitable member both 
in church & comone weal the." 

"After I had been thus boat-hooked into the New World, 
I was further descended from Thomas Dudley, the second 
governor of Massachusetts Bay; from Rose Dunster, 
sister of the first president of Harvard College; from Rev. 
John Woodbridge, an Oxford graduate, brother of the first 
alumnus named on our Harvard roll; and from Lieut. 
Phineas Upham, who was fatally wounded at the storming 
of Narragansett Fort in King Philip's War. Captain 
Samuel Green, another grandsire, and his son Thomas, were 
pioneers of Leicester; Dr. John Green, of the next genera- 
tion, was a pioneer of Worcester. He married a daughter 
of General Timothy Ruggles, a judge and the president 
of the Stamp Act Congress, and the most widely known and 
most hated Loyalist of our neighborhood, in the Revolu- 
tionary days; while his son-in-law (Dr. Green) was a 
rebel beyond hope of pardon. 

"Perhaps the most noteworthy fact about my family 
is this: Three Dr. John Greens, grandfather, father, and 
son, practised medicine continuously in Worcester for 
ninety-eight years; if we count in also Dr. Thomas Green, 
father of the eldest Dr. John, who lived in our adjoining 
town of Leicester, this one continuous line of surgeons and 
physicians ministered to this neighborhood for one hundred 
and thirty-five years without a break. Of each one of the 
four, moreover, it seems to be the unquestioned contempo- 
raneous opinion that he was at the head of his profession. 
This record of continuous public service is something satis- 
factory to contemplate. If my brother. Dr. John Green 
of St. Louis, and his son of the same name and place (both 
Harvard men), are thought of in connection with these 
who preceded them, we have an unbroken record of pro- 
fessional service of a high grade for six generations."

criticisms and the like, and was at once offered the literary 
editorship." His work included the leading book reviews 
and many editorial articles, particularly on foreign affairs. 
For thirty years he remained in the service of the Sun, "an 
indefatigable writer, bringing to his task a store of learning 
and of knowledge of mankind almost incredible in its dimen- 
sions. He possessed a gift of industry akin to genius; 
and a retrospect of his work reveals a mass that would fill 
a library. He was a man of admirable personal qualities, 
self-contained and retiring in his habits, but sharing freely 
in the agreeable associations of life, and endearing himself 
to many." Gold win Smith wrote of him: "The impartial- 
ity of his judgment was complete. Not to the Sun alone, 
but to our whole world of letters, the loss is irreparable." 

Hazeltine also did a large amount of writing for the 
North American Review and other periodicals. He published 
a few books: "Universities at Home and Abroad," " Chats 
about Books," "The American Woman in Europe," besides 
many smaller books and pamphlets. 

He died at Atlantic City, Sept. 14, 1909. 

Hazeltine married Sophie B. Dallas; they had a daugh- 
ter, Sophie D. Hazeltine.

which served under General Foster in North Carolina. In 
January, 1863, he was commissioned first lieutenant. The 
regiment was mustered out in June, 1863; and in the fall

of that year, Hedge began the study of law in the office of 
Whiting and Russell, 35 Court Street, Boston. He at the 
same time took the course of study at the Harvard Law 
School, receiving his degree of LL.B. in 1866. He was 
admitted to the bar in the fall of that year. He has con- 
tinued the practice of law until the present time, at first 
at 35 Court Street, lately at 950 Tremont Building. 
"Outside of my profession, my principal interests have been 
centered in the Plymouth Public Library (of which I have 
been director and either secretary or president for the past 
thirty years) and in the work of the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries, 
obtaining my principal recreation each year by making 
frequent trips on board the U. S. Fisheries steamer Phala- 
nope during the winter months." His residence is in 
Plymouth. For over twenty years he has been interested 
in the Old Colony Natural History Society of Plymouth; 
and he has been secretary of the Boston Provident Associa-

38 CLASS OF ' S I XT Y-T WO — H. U. 

1863. At home he slowly recovered, but with a paralysis 
of his lower extremities. In October he made a voyage

*JOHN HODGES, son of John and Mary Osgood 
(Deland) Hodges, was born in Salem, Mass., December 8, 
1841. He fitted for college at the Salem High School. 
April 17, 1861, when the Eighth Massachusetts was called 
out, Hodges joined his company, the Salem Light Infantry 
("Zouaves"), and served with the regiment till its return 
in August. August 22 he was commissioned first lieutenant 
in the Nineteenth Massachusetts; but in June, 1862, he 
was obliged to resign on account of sickness contracted in 
the Peninsular campaign. By November, however, he was 
well enough to enter the service again, this time as major 
of the Fiftieth Massachusetts, a nine months' regiment; 
his commission was signed November 7, 1862. The regi- 
ment was sent to New Orleans, and served in the Port 
Hudson campaign. On his return with the regiment in 
the fall of 1863, he sought further service; and on February 
2, 1864, he was commissioned lieutenant-colonel of the 
Fifty-ninth Massachusetts (Bartlett's) Regiment. July 30, 

1864, at the explosion of the mine before Petersburg, he 
was severely wounded; and, while waiting in the crater, 
was struck by a fragment of shell, and instantly killed. 

FREDERICK LUCIAN HOSMER, son of Charles 
and Susan (Carter) Hosmer, was bom in Framingham, 
Mass., October 16, 1840. He fitted for college at the high

college he taught school in Lancaster, Mass., and again 
during the Sophomore winter; in the winter of Junior year 
he taught in Sudbury, and for six weeks in the winter of

School, Bolton. On leaving college he was for two years 
master of the latter school. From July, 1864, to July, 
1866, he was master of the Adams (Grammar) School, 
Dorchester — at present the Harris School, Boston. This 



HOSMER 39 

position he resigned and entered the Harvard Divinity 
School in September, 1866. On completing his course here 
he accepted a call to the First Congregational Church and 
Society (Unitarian) in Northborough, Mass., as associate 
minister with the venerable Dr. Joseph Allen, and was 
ordained by his people without ecclesiastical council, 
October 28, 1869. 

In July, 1872, Hosmer responded to an urgent call from 
the Second Congregational Church (Unitarian) of Quincy, 
111. — which had then been for two years without a settled 
minister — and entered upon his pastorate the following 
October. In April, 1877, he resigned this charge for the 
purpose of study and travel abroad. After eighteen months 
in Europe he returned to Boston, and the following month 
became minister of the Church of the Unity, Cleveland, O. 
Hosmer 's Cleveland pastorate covered fourteen years. 
From September 1, 1892, to October 1, 1893 (World's Fair 
year), he was secretary of the Western Unitarian Conference, 
whose headquarters were in Chicago. The following winter 
and spring he spent in Colorado and California; and in 
June, 1894, he accepted a call to the Church of the Unity, 
St. Louis, succeeding in the pastorate his friend, John C. 
Learned, who had died six months before. After five years 
of service he resigned his pastorate with the intention of 
taking a year free from "regular harness," and spent the 
autumn of 1899 in his native New England; but in early 
January, 1900, he accepted a call to take temporary charge 
of the First Unitarian Church, Berkeley, Cal., then sud- 
denly left without a minister. This move led to his becom- 
ing settled as minister, and he remained in the pastorate until 
July 1, 1904, and has since continued to reside in Berkeley. 

In the Spring of 1908, by invitation of the faculty, 
Hosmer gave before the Harvard Divinity School a course 
of ten lectures on Church Hymnody; such a course hav- 
ing been provided for by the generous gift of Mr. Horace 
S. Sears to the School. In the following June Hosmer was 
elected an honorary member of the Harvard Chapter of 
the Phi Beta Kappa Society. 

Along with occasional sermons and addresses, Hosmer 
has published: "The Way of Life: a service book for Sun-

1894; "Unity Hymns and Chorals," in joint editorship 
with Mr. Gannett and J. Vila Blake, our classmate, Chicago, 
1880; and, with Mr. Gannett as joint editor, a much revised 
and enlarged edition of the same in 1911.

HENRY SHIPPEN HUIDEKOPER, son of Edgar 
and Frances (Shippen) Huidekoper, was born in Meadville, 
July 17, 1839. He entered college with his brother in 
March, 1859. In September, 1862, he was lieutenant- 
colonel of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Pennsylvania 
Volunteers. He lost his right arm at the battle of Gettys- 
burg, where he was in command of his regiment. (He is 
now the only graduate of Harvard College who lost a limb 
in the service.) February 22, 1864, he was commissioned 
colonel; and on March 5, 1864, was discharged on account 
of disability from wounds. September 17, 1870, he was 
appointed major-general, Twentieth Division National 
Guard of Pennsylvania. He is now the senior major- 
general, retired, having served as such for eleven years. 
In 1874 he published a "Manual of Service'* for the 
use of the Guard. 

In 1880 Huidekoper was appointed postmaster at 
Philadelphia, and served for over five years (under four 
presidents and seven postmaster-generals) until November, 
1885. Among the measures suggested by him, and adopted 
by the Government, were the raising of the unit of weight 
for letters from half-an-ounce to one ounce, and the sending 
of notices to addressees that letters were held for insuflScient 
postage. During his administration, the Philadelphia post- 
office had a high reputation. On October 11, 1888, Senator 
Chace of Rhode Island said in the Senate: "The Philadel- 
phia post office, which had been managed for eight years 
by General Huidekoper, was admitted on all hands, I believe, 
to have been the best managed post-office in the world, not 
even excepting the celebrated London office. General 
Huidekoper had conducted his business purely upon civil 
service reform principles . There was no charge — there could 
be no charge — made of his management of the office. He 
was removed .... and the chairman of the Democratic 
City Committee of Philadelphia put in his place." 

From January, 1886, to January, 1888, Huidekoper was 
vice-president and general manager of the Metropolitan 
Telephone and Telegraph Company, now the New York 
Telephone Company; and since January, 1888, he has been 
a special agent of the American Bell Telephone Company,

chusetts, for the regularity of his attendance at meetings.

EDWARD DELANO LINDSEY, son of Henry and

ford, March 30, 1841. He fitted for college at the schools 



LINDSEY 47 

of New Bedford. He was the class odist. After graduating 
he entered the School of Fine Arts at Paris, where he 
remained until July, 1865, when he returned to Boston, 
and entered the office of N. J. Bradlee, architect. In 1867 
he went to New York, and engaged in the practice of his 
profession. In 1868 he built the French Theatre, also the 
Drexel Building, almost the first of the "fire-proofs." His 
work on the completion, renovation, and redecoration of 
the Equitable Life Insurance building attracted the atten- 
tion of some of the officers of the insurance company, who 
were also trustees of Princeton University; and in the Autumn 
of 1876 he was appointed to the newly-created chair of 
Architecture and Applied Art. ** My classes belong especially 
to the students in the John C. Green School of Science, — 
our technical branch of the college; and I lecture on art 
from the aesthetic point of view to the seniors in the academic 
branch as well as those in the school. I have made some 
progress, I think, in the technical branch; and my depart- 
ment is favorably looked upon. From my professional 
training, it was deemed wise that I should have charge of 
the material interests of the college; and I divide with the 
treasurer the entire care and responsibility, — a heavy 
burden, as we have sixty-five acres and forty buildings, 
mostly large. I have been the architect, also, of some six 
or eight structures for the college of much importance, 
one that I hope will prove a model dormitory." 

In 1880 Lindsey's health broke down, from overwork 
and exposure to the typhoid epidemic at Princeton; and he 
resigned his professorship, returning, when health per- 
mitted, to the practice of his profession in New York. His 
principal work has been upon dwellings, both in the city and 
in the country; he has also been the architect of several large 
mercantile buildings, such as the Consolidated Exchange, 
the building for the American Lithograph Co. — one of 
the strongest commercial buildings in the world — and sev- 
eral theatres, a department in which he is a recognized 
expert. He is also the inventor of an accepted method of 
fire-proof construction of floors, etc. 

"My Princeton work led me into archaeology and art- 
history, and I have given many lectures on these subjects. 



48 CLASS OF ' S IXT Y-T W O — H. U. 

notably in the New York Public School lecture course. I 
occupy myself in my leisiu-e time, as I have for more than 
thirty years, in perfecting my multitudinous notes and 
collections of illustrations, running into thousands; and it 
is my intention as soon as possible to connect myself with 
some institution — as professor, if I can — so that I can 
have legitimate opportunity to complete something worth 
leaving behind me. 

"Prof. William R. Ware, George B. Post, and myself 
are the oldest living American architects of regular training.'*

ARTHUR REED, son of Caleb and Mary E. (Minot) 
Reed, was bom in Boston, Aug. 13, 1841. He fitted for 
college at the Boston Latin School. In September, 1862, 
he enlisted in the Forty-fifth Massachusetts Regiment, was 
appointed quarter-master-sergeant in October, served with

July, 1863. In 1868, he went into the insurance business 
in Boston, and has remained in this business ever since. 
Through his membership in the Harvard Glee Club in col- 
lege days, he became much interested in vocal music, espe- 
cially for male voices; and he was one of the founders, in 
1871, of the Apollo Club of Boston, a male-voice club of 
fifty members, of which he was the first secretary and 
virtually business manager, and so remained for twenty- 
five years. The club has been most successful, having had 



REED 61 

imitators all over the country, some of which have adopted 
its name. Reed was also one of the founders of the Cecilia 
of Boston, a mixed-voice club of about one hundred members 
in its early days, of which he was one of the managers for 
twenty years. 

Address: 27 Kilby Street, Boston. 

Residence: Clinton Road, Brookline. 

Reed married, Oct. 28, 1866, Elizabeth H. Webster, of

* JOSEPH SAMPSON REED, son of Sampson Reed 
(H. C, 1818) and Catherine (Clark) Reed, was born in 
Boston, Dec. 13, 1841. He fitted for college at the Boston 
Latin School. In 1862 he went to Port Royal as superin- 
tendent of plantations on Ladies' Island. In 1863 he was 
employed as a clerk in Chicago; but soon returned to Port 
Royal, bought a plantation on Ladies' Island, near Beaufort, 
and lived there and at Beaufort till his death, which took 
place Jan. 12, 1897. In 1895 he wrote: "I believe I can 
claim no other present honors except being Democratic 
county chairman, which simply seems to involve labor and 
condemnation. It has been, however, I think, a rather unusual 
thing, perhaps, in this State, for a so-called Northern man 
to receive these honors. I was for some years lieutenant 
in the Beaufort Artillery and Naval Reserve, but have with- 
drawn from the military." At the time of his death he 
was treasurer of Beaufort County. 

Reed married, Dec. 29, 1870, Florence A. D. Scammon,

In 1863 he went into business in Boston, and was for a time 
with the firm of Rogers, Shute, and Co., 75 Summer Street. 
In January, 1880, he went to New York, and went into 
business with Butler Brothers. About 1893 he went to Cali- 
fornia, living at San Diego till a short time before his death. 

Rogers married, Sept. 7, 1886, Mrs. M. K. Leach, of 
Boston. 

He died at National City, Cal., Feb. 15, 1906. 

HENRY MUNROE ROGERS, son of John Hicks and 
Lucy Catherine (Smith) Rogers, was born in Boston, Feb. 
27, 1839. He fitted for college at the Boston Latin School. 
On the death of Chapman in 1865, Rogers was chosen a 
member of the class committee, and later its Chairman. 
Nov. 5, 1862, he was appointed acting assistant paymaster 
in the navy; he served first on the Daylight, on blockade 
duty off Wilmington, N. C; afterwards on the Ascuiney and 
the Wilderness participating in 1864-1865 in the movements 
resulting in the taking of Fort Fisher and Wilmington N. C. 
He left the service Nov. 20, 1865. Sept. 30, 1865, while on 
a three months' leave of absence, he entered the law school 
at Cambridge, where he remained until April 23, 1867, 
taking his LL.B. degree that year. On the first of April, 
1867, he entered the law oflfice of Messrs. Brooks and Ball, 
40 State Street, Boston, remained there till the summer of 
1869, and in September took an office at 42 Court Street, 
where he remained until 1901. He was admitted to the 
Suffolk bar in April, 1868. 

In June, 1901, Rogers formed a partnership with Frank 
A. North, under the name of Rogers and North, and took 
rooms at 89 State Street. April 1, 1903, the firm became 
Rogers, North, and Johnson, Melvin M. Johnson joining 
the firm. In December, 1907, Rogers withdrew from the 
firm, retaining, however, his old office; the firm, still at 
89 State Street, is now Johnson and North. 

Rogers has travelled much, both on this continent and 
abroad. He has crossed the Atlantic thirty-eight times. 



ROGERS 63 

In 1903 he visited Honolulu, where he met Brigham; Japan 
and China, where at Hong Kong he saw Jeffries; thence 
home by way of the Straits Settlements, Ceylon, India, 
Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and the Azores, spending 
considerable time in each country. 

Of his professional activities Rogers writes: 

"During my professional career, and especially while 
in the activities of admiralty practice, I have been engaged 
in many cases of far-reaching importance, especially those 
relating to carriage by sea, bills-of-lading, marine insurance, 
and kindred subjects. 

*'I have been before almost every kind of a tribunal, from 
the Municipal Court of our city to the Supreme Court of 
the United States. In 1878 I was engaged in a suit for 
libel, — perhaps the last case where such a combination of 
circumstances could occur, — as counsel for the plaintiff, a 
former runaway slave, against a wealthy and prominent 
citizen of Boston, defendant, wherein those who had 
formerly been slaves in the South were witnesses on 
one side or the other. I was also the initiator of the 
criminal prosecution for barratry against the captain and 
for the indictments against merchants of Boston engaged 
in a conspiracy to defraud marine insurance companies, 
in the famous case of the Mary Celeste, a cause which 
lasted for several weeks and which was conducted with rare 
ability by Warren K. Blodgett, Jr., then assistant U. S. 
District Attorney (H. U., 1878). In that case I was con- 
spicuous by my absence whenever the court was in session. 

"My writings have been of a sporadic and ephemeral 
character, in the press and elsewhere. 

"My life has been and is full of varied interests and of 
associations of a somewhat unusual character; from its 
variety I believe I have derived a better understanding of 
mankind than I should have had if I had confined myself 
exclusively to the routine of professional work. Whether this 
be so or not, my course was chosen deliberately : my interest 
in my profession has never abated, and my delight in travel 
grows with my advancing years. Within a twelve month 
of this writing, I have visited Yellowstone Park in the 
north and Cuba and Panama in the south."

* HENRY ROPES, son of William and Mary Ann 
(Codman) Ropes, was bom near London, May 16, 1839. 
He fitted for college with Sidney Willard, in Boston. He 
suffered during his college course from weak eyes, which 
interfered very much with his studies. He was in the 
University crew in 1860. Nov. 25, 1861, he was commis- 
sioned second lieutenant in the Twentieth Massachusetts 
Regiment, and first lieutenant Oct. 2, 1862. He was with 
the regiment through the campaigns of that year, from York-

wounds. But at Gettysburg, July 3, 1863, during a pause 
in the infantry conflict, he was killed by the premature 
explosion of a shell from one of our batteries. 

CHARLES SPRAGUE SARGENT, son of Ignatius 
and Henrietta (Grey) Sargent, was born in Boston, April

made numerous visits to Europe. He passed the Summer 
and Autumn of 1902 in Japan; in 1903 he travelled in the 
Caucasus and through Siberia to China and Java, returning 



SARGENT 65

returning home by the Straits of Magellan, the Falkland 
Islands, and Europe. 

From 1879-1884 Sargent, as an agent of the Tenth 
Census of the United States, had charge of the investigation 
of the forests and forest wealth of the United States; and 
in 1883 he was a member of the Northern Pacific Transcon- 
tinental Survey. In 1885 he was the chairman of a com- 
mission appointed by the governor of the State of New 
York to recommend a plan for the preservation of the 
Adirondack forests; and in 1896-1897 he was the chairman 
of a commission appointed by the National Academy of 
Sciences to prepare a report upon the inauguration of a 
rational forest policy for the forested lands of the United 
States. From 1881 to 1895 he was engaged in the formation 
and arrangement of the Jesup collection of North American 
woods in the American Museum of Natural History in 
New York. 

For forty-one years Sargent has been a trustee of the 
Massachusetts Society for Promoting Agriculture, and is 
now president of the society. He is a trustee of the Mu- 
seum of Fine Arts, of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society, and of the Massachusetts Society for the Preserva-

gent (H. C. 1830) and Caroline (Olmsted) Sargent, was 
born in New York, April 3, 1840. He was fitted for col- 
lege by private tutors. On account of ill health he was 
obliged to leave college during the Senior year; but, ** owing 
to the kind efforts of my classmates, to whom I have always 
been grateful, I was accorded my degree," in 1892. He was 
in the Law School two years, taking his LL.B. degree in 1864. 
After the death of his parents, he interested himself in 
horticulture, and in the care of his gardens at his old home, 
"Wodenethe," Fishkill-on-Hudson. Here he has lived for 
the past thirty years, though spending many winters in 
Boston. For twenty-five years he has been president of 
the Highland Hospital at Fishkill, an active institution 
which he helped to build and to support. He has also 
been president of the Public Library, a director of the bank, 
and, for thirty years, warden of the Episcopal church. " For 
twenty-one years my wife and I have been much interested 
in the Sargent Industrial School, founded and supported 
by us. Here free instruction is given annually to six hun- 
dred young women and girls of the neighborhood; the 
object of the School is to prepare the pupils for the effec- 
tive administration of a private home, or to enable them to 
earn an independent livelihood.'* 

For several years Sargent has been somewhat of an 
invalid. He gave up his oflSce at 30 Court St. some years 
ago, and now spends most of the year at his old home, at

CHARLES CARROLL SOULE, son of Richard Soule 
(H. C, 1832) and Harriett (Winsor) Soule, was born in 
Boston, June 25, 1842. He fitted for college at the Boston 
Latin School and the Brookline High School. While a 
Freshman, he was a collaborator on Worcester's Dictionary. 
In 1861 he was one of the party of students engaged in the 
"River Observations" at Concord, Mass; (others were 
Hudson, Nichols, Nye, C. H. Porter, Pritchard, Stone, 
Trask, Ware, and G. P. Stevens, 1863). Near the end of his 
college course he became captain in the Thirty-third Massa- 
chusetts Regiment, but was not mustered into the United 
States service. As the regiment filled up very slowly, he 
left it in July, 1862, and went to Port Royal, S. C, to over- 
see plantations. Hearing of the formation of the Forty- 
fourth Massachusetts Regiment, he returned to Boston in 
October, enlisted as a private, and on October 22 was com- 
missioned second lieutenant in Company B. When the 
term of oflSce expired, he joined the Fifty-fifth Massachu- 
setts as captain of Company K, and remained with it through 
the war. At the battle of Honey Hill, S. C, he received a 
slight flesh wound in the arm. From May until August, 
1865, he was provost judge and superintendent of freedmen 
in South Carolina. The following winter he spent in 
Charleston, in the real-estate agency business, returning 
in April, 1866. In May he became a clerk with Messrs. 
Little, Brown, and Co., Boston. In October, 1869, he went 
West, and became the senior partner in the new firm of 
Soule, Thomas, and Winsor, law and general booksellers in 
St. Louis, Mo. In 1877, during the serious riots in St. 



70 CLASS OF 'SIXTY-TWO — H.U. 

Louis, lasting a week, Soule commanded, as major, the 
"University Club Battalion," which gave valuable assist- 
ance to the authorities. 

May 1, 1878, Soule accepted an offer of partnership from 
Little, Brown, and Co., sold out his interest in St. Louis, 
and "emigrated back to Boston." In 1881 he left Little, 
Brown and Co., and formed the partnership of Soule and 
Bugbee, for publishing, importing, and selUng law books, at 
37 Court St., Boston. This partnership expired in 1884, 
and Soule continued the same business alone, moving to 
the Freeman Place Chapel, 15^ Beacon St. In June, 1890, 
he established the Boston Book Co., of which, from the 
beginning, he has been the president. The company is now 
located on Francis St., near the Harvard Medical School. 
"The company has two specialties: law books, and full sets 
of periodicals on all subjects and in all languages. It deals 
not only in this country, but also in Europe and all the 
British Colonies." In 1883 Soule published "The Lawyers* 
Reference Manual," a volume of legal bibliography; a 
second edition was issued in 1897. 

While in St. Louis, Soule wrote two travesties, "as a skit 
for the University Club (of which I was a founder) : 'Romeo 
and Juliet,' and 'Hamlet Revamped, a Travesty without 
a Pun.* They made an unexpected hit for amateur rep- 
resentation. I was not proud of their literary quality; 
but they seemed to have *go. '" 

In 1879 Soule joined the American Library Association, 
and has since served actively in its different working oflBces, 
"finally taking library architecture as a specialty. On 
this subject I have spoken, written, and advised a lot." 
Among his publications are "Points of Agreement among 
Librarians on Library Architecture," "Library Rooms and 
Buildings," and the article "Library" in Russell Sturgis's 
Dictionary of Architecture and Building. He is now 
(December, 1911) "engaged in preparing a volume on 
*How to Plan a Library Building,' to embody my experi- 
ence of forty years; which I hope to live to finish and pub- 
lish." The book will be published in June, 1912. 

For some years Soule has been employed, by library 
trustees and others, as an expert adviser on library con- 



SOULE 71 

struction and equipment: "In this way I have been able 
to add considerably to a declining income, by expert service 
which seemed to be successful and appreciated; a perhaps 
unique example of altruistic work helping one materially 
in his old age." A few years ago his advice as to the proper 
appropriation for a new library building for Brookline saved 
that town about $150,000; and more recently, as one of the 
visitors to the Harvard Library, "I have been able to give 
some work to Alma Mater, in consulting with the special 
board of architects to suggest site and plans for a new building 
adequate to the needs and dignity of the University." 

Soule reports that he has made over twenty business 
trips across the Atlantic: "I have spent in all over a year 
of my life in ocean travel, — a good record for a poor sailor. 
In 1907 1 visited fourteen countries of Europe, interviewing 
leading lawyers and judges. Four months of this, using 
ten different languages, was a strenuous polyglot whirl." 

About twenty years ago, Soule suffered from a serious 
attack of grippe, followed by a severe case of scarlet fever. 
He has never been well since. In August, 1910, he had a 
stroke of paralysis, from which he has partially recovered; 
but he has to give up details of business, "though I am 
allowed literary recreation." 

Since he returned from St. Louis, Soule has resided in 
Brookline, for the last fifteen years and until this spring in 
his own house, 45 Warren Street, beautifully situated on the 
eastern shore of the old reservoir. He has recently moved 
to Wellington Terrace.
